  • Perfect for a graduation party in May!

    "This past weekend, May 8-11, 2014, was the second time we have rented the Jacob Rabb House and both times it has been for a graduation. The location of this beautiful home makes it so convenient for our families who either stayed at the Joseph Pinckney Inn or the King Charles on Meeting Street. Another plus is having the parking garage right across the street so our guests could park and party! The gardens were so lush and green and we rented round tables which were where everyone wanted to congregate as the temperature was a pleasant 76 degrees and the night sky full of stars ( despite the light pollution of downtown). The owners were very attentive to our needs and resolved any issues as quickly as possible. I highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a comfortable home away from home. Peace, Dotsi and Fred Hoffman"

  • Great weekend!

    "The house was amazing. It was decorated beautifully and was the perfect spot in downtown Charleston. It easily accommodated the six of us. It was easy to take a cab to go out to eat downtown. We walked from the house to king street and went shopping one day. It was about a five minute walk to king street. The house was about a 20 minute drive to Sullivan's beach. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. We cooked brunch and dinner one night in the house and the kitchen was perfect. Great spot to stay for a fun weekend in downtown Charleston. Also it was a very reasonable price for a holiday weekend! Highly recommend that you stay here!"

  • Quaint comfortable cottage

    "I was in town visiting relatives and stayed at this enchanting cottage. The neighborhood was safe and I thoroughly enjoyed my morning walks. Coffee shop was less than a half mile away and the neighborhood restaurants were perfect. The cottage was clean, well maintained and had everything I needed. The interior was furnished well and fit the style of the dwelling. I would definitely stay here again!!"
